Since the dawn of the industrial age, the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere has increased from about 280 to 385 ppm, and is rising. Compared to oxygen, there is little CO2 available to a plant. Thus, anything which improves the efficiency of a leaf to take in CO2 from the small amount available in the atmosphere favors photosynthesis. Stomata, carbon dioxide, and C 3 photosynthesis CO2 enters a plant through the stomata, the pores found, most often, on the undersurfaces of leaves (see Chapters 3 and 12).
